Karnataka: Ambulance gets preference over VIP convoy


Team Udayavani, Jul 10, 2018, 10:56 AM IST

Bengaluru: A top city police official said on Monday said that ambulances in Karnataka need not wait for a VIP convoy to pass for  hurrying patients to hospitals for emergency treatment.

“According to the orders from the state police chief Neelamani N. Raju, the traffic police in the city and across the state will clear a path for the ambulances to go through to get the patients to hospitals in time, regardless of whether there is VIP convoy on the way,” Bengaluru Police Commissioner T. Suneel Kumar said.

The move comes after the state’s Deputy Chief Minister and Home Minister G. Parameshwara wrote to Raju asking the state’s traffic police to offer inclination to ambulances in spite of VIP convoy movement. 

“I have watched that ambulances are now and then ceased to clear a path for my convoy. Nothing is more important than rescuing a man needing emergency help. Going ahead, no ambulances will be stop during the movement of VIP convoy,” Parameshwara said in a tweet. 

In June a year ago, a cop Nijlingappa was remunerated by the city police office for clearing a path for a ambulance before then President Pranab Mukherjee’s convoy passed on the same route.
